Dream Aria / Press

"Tremendously powerful rock textures and operatic range of Ann's voice intertwine , Dream Aria is a very talented ensemble fronted by an outstanding vocalist " 5/5

“Dream Aria's first album In The Wake received critical acclaim after release in 2005. The band went on to record contributions to other artists' work before releaseing the masterpiece Transcend in 2008. Since then they have become even more active on the web and have hosted live concerts to expand their footprint of live music played for world audiences. Work on Fallen Angel began in earnest in June when the demo tracks really began to take shape and form the structure of the new album. Like prior Dream Aria albums, the music is diverse. The majority of the tunes are upbeat rockers, each with a different sort of instrumental excursion to better develop the sound of each track. Ann Burstyn's lead and backing vocals are again perfectly mixed with harmonies adding depth to round out the overall texture the band have produced. Don and Ann have done a tremendous job on this new project and clearly have a lot more music in their future. Bravo!”

"... elle sait captiver l'auditeur pour le transporter dans l'univers onirique de ce Fallen Angel." "...it captivates the listener to be transported into the dreamlike world of Fallen Angel"

"Once she gets a hold of you, you’re not being released until the end of the album."

"Any progressive metal fans will enjoy this album, as will most melodic rock fans. The complex arrangements and depth of the music make this album a treat for the ears."

"Dream Aria´s compositions are very musical and with Ann Burstyn´s storytelling lyrics, it feels like I´m listening to a soundtrack to a screenplay."

"Dream Aria continue to grow from strength to strength. The new album 'Fallen Angel' is a densly arranged project, one that will equally delight instrumental and female vocal enthusiasts."

“Out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada comes the progressive rock band Dream Aria! Read the interview with the band dominating the MySpace Music Charts.”

"Transcend" review by Gert - "All in all i am impressed with the progress these guys (and lady!) have made so far. Can’t wait for their next step and knowing this album was released in 2008 hopefully the wait isn’t that long."

"The overal sound of the group is powerfull, pulsating, rythmic and polished."

"If you’re looking for melodic rock laced with progressive, ambient, techno and gothic moments then Dream Aria’s 'Transcend' is a very recommended release for you."

"Transcend is a superb follow up to the band's debut." "... Dream Aria are amongst a rare bred of bands (like Britain's Magenta) producing quality female fronted progressive rock music. Bravo!"

"Do yourself a favor and check em out!"

"When I reviewed this group’s last disc I was impressed. It was a strong album. The thing is, this new one blows that one completely out of the water."

"...the best way to describe their music is to think of it as a journey, a passage far removed from the daily grind of traffic jams and deadlines, lifting you off on some nearby astral plane, where, damn it, everything just sounds a little bit better."

"impressed with music that pushes aside barriers and combines styles of music that are not normally heard together"

" Heavenly? Ethereal? Angelic? Vocalist Ann Burstyn, who was asked to join the band after advertising herself as a “singer for hire,” is working in the big leagues here."

"This is simply one of my favorite releases of 2005 and I can’t recommend it enough."

"Dream Aria has created an album of diverse textures built on a progressive rock foundation. Ann Burstyn's powerful and wide ranging vocals perfectly compliment rich instrumental arrangements from quiet ballads to all out rock songs both in the lead and backing harmony sections. Dream Aria is a very talented ensemble fronted by an outstanding vocalist. We are extremely anxious to hear more from the group very soon."
